23rd August 2006, 7:29 PM

First, give us the sets and the card numbers so we know the attacks. We can't help you unless we know the attacks.

Take out two or three energies and add in to the Trainers.

23rd August 2006, 7:35 PM
ok ill get on that now.

Right, well, from the off, this is an Unlimited deck, as there are cards from sets before EX Deoxys.

Misty's Seadra is completely useless as you have no Misty's Horsea. Get rid of it, as it is it's a waste of space. Get rid of Mantine and the Horsea line, too. Put in another seven Pokémon, either in a 1-2-4, 1-3-3 or 2-2-3 (or even 2-3-2) line.

Get rid of a Double Colorless Energy or a Potion.

i dropped a potion and the horsea line and added a squirtle line. By the way im still new at this and alot of my monsters have a colorless energy next to an attack, meaning i need to pay a colorless and a water energy to attack. Dont i need more colorless energys? And i feel so stupid saying this but what are damage counters? What other cards should i put into my deck to make it better?

I seriously suggest you buy EX Trainer Kit 2 and read the manual in there. If you're unsure of the basics you need a starter set and that'll halp massively. :)

Colorless Energy are special - anything can count as a Colorless Energy. So a Water Energy can count as Water and Colorless, a Fire Energy can count as Fire and Colorless, and so on.

You're using a 3-2-2 line for Squirtle, which is very good indeed. You're experimenting. As you have more Blastoises than you do Wartortles, you're more likely to pick up a Blastoise from your deck, and that's helpful.

It's definitely coming along, though I still say take out the three Double Colorless energy as you don't need them, and add three Trainer cards in.

ok thanks alot. Now that i understand i can use a water energy as a colorless one, i know that i dont need the double colorless energys anymore. Ill update the deck now. Thanks alot.

I took out 3 Double Colorless Energy's for

Team Aqua Schemer- Even though it doesnt really go with the theme its still a discard one draw 3.
Team Magma Schemer- Same as above
Super Rod- Good card

In future, please don't double-post, just edit your first post. Thanks.

You've put in three good cards there. The deck's turning out nicely.

23rd August 2006, 10:00 PM
oh sorry about the double post wont happen again. I just read a rulebook so im beginnning to understand the game and what cards work good, ect. Thanks for the help. So do u think there are any cards that i could get to replace some of the not so good ones in here?

Question: Im pretty sure that you are not allowed to evolve a pokemon in the same turn u played it right? Example: I bring out Squirtle, i cant evolve him till next turn, right? Then say next turn i evolve him into Wartortle, can i evolve him into Blastoise the same turn i evolved Squirtel into Wartorltle, or can u only evolve once per turn?

2nd Question: Can i evolve pokemon on the bench?

At this point, try playing the deck. If you have any consistent problems during the course of the game, they need to be noted and fixed. That's how I came to make Devil's Duty.

23rd August 2006, 10:38 PM
ok thanks alot. Do u know the answers to any of my questions in my last post?

Question 2: Yes, you can evolve Pokémon on the Bench.

The evolution phase works like this:

Turn 1: Squirtle goes on bench.
Turn 2: Evolve into Wartortle.
Turn 3: Evolve into Blastoise.
